Former presidential adviser and extremist, Samantha Power, is Obama’s choice for US Ambassador to the UN. To give you an idea of how extreme she is, Power once said she wanted to invade Israel. She encourages shifting support from Israel to Palestine. She believes, as does Obama, that he must follow HIS values, not the will of the people.
Most problematic is the fact that Obama was not clear about his values before his election and re-election.
Her nomination is a slap in the face of Israel and the US electorate.
Power believes in talking to all enemies without military threats or actual action against them. She does not see the threat of radical Islam as the problem.
She is the former Chair of Obama’s new Atrocities Prevention Board (a Genocide Panel). This appointment was made immediately after Obama’s eloquent speech at the Holocaust Museum.

When she was foreign policy adviser to the Obama campaign in 2008, she objected to focusing on the Israelis and to the “US’s axiomatic support for Israel on security matters.
“So much of it is about: ‘Is he going to be good for the Jews?'”
The next president, says Power, is going to have to “do a lot of rehabilitation” on this issue. “All we talk about is ‘Islamic terrorism’. If the two words are associated for long enough it’s obviously going to have an effect on how people think about Muslims. But I think Obama’s going to do wonders for closing those chasms. Even just opening up a conversation is going to get us some of the way. And it’s not insignificant that he spent time in a Muslim country, that he is half Kenyan – a lot of barriers have been bust through.”
We need rehabilitation in our support of Israel according to Power.
In 2002 she was interviewed by Harry Kreisler, the director of the Institute for International Studies at Berkeley. Kreisler asked her the following:
Let me give you a thought experiment here, and it is the following: without addressing the Palestine – Israel problem, let’s say you were an advisor to the President of the United States, how would you respond to current events there? Would you advise him to put a structure in place to monitor that situation, at least if one party or another [starts] looking like they might be moving toward genocide?
Power’s advice to the President would be to alienate the American Jewish community and invest in Palestine. She said she wants the US to establish and pay for a mammoth protection force for the Palestine State though she was opposed to doing the same in Iraq.
She refers to the Palestinians as victims of genocide in this video:
Samantha Power is married to Cass Sunstein, former regulatory czar. Sunstein once said that animals should have court-apponted lawyers to protect their rights. He is a big fan of the UN Bill of Rights which would destroy our Bill of Rights. In his Bill of Rights, everything becomes an entitlement. Everyone is entitled to a car, a house, a vacation, and so on, without necessarily working for it.
We can see where this is going.
Obama’s agenda is full steam ahead.
